    Prayer request for my dear wife, need prayers please!

    What is your wife's name Papa?
  2. “God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27) “Be fertile and multiply” (Genesis 1:28) “Behold, said he, thou art with child, and thou shalt bring forth a son: and thou shalt call his name Ismael, because the Lord hath heard thy affliction.” (Genesis 16:11) “And Isaac besought the Lord for his wife, because she was barren: and he heard him, and made Rebecca to conceive. But the children struggled in her womb…” (Genesis 25:21-22) “In the womb he supplanted his brother, and as a man he contended with God.” (Hosea 12:3) “But when Rebecca also had conceived at once of Isaac our father. For when the children were not yet born, nor had done any good or evil (that the purpose of God according to election might stand) . . .” (Romans 9:10-11) “Truly children are a gift from the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward” (Psalm 127:3) “You knit me in my mother’s womb . . . nor was my frame unknown to you when I was made in secret” (Psalm 139:13,15) “You have been my guide since I was first formed . . . from my mother’s womb you are my God” (Psalm 22:10-11). “God… from my mother’s womb had set me apart and called me through his grace” (St. Paul to the Galatians 1:15) “They mingled with the nations and learned their works…They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons, and they shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, desecrating the land with bloodshed” (Psalm 106:35, 37-38) “Thou shalt not kill” (Exodus 20:13, Deuteronomy 5:17) “Do unto others as you would have them do to you” (Matthew 7:12)
  3. Yes....those Floridians...idiot judges.....don't know the difference between a fetus and a baby.........not nearly as educated as us! LOL!
  4. Everyone and I mean everyone knows that a fetus turns into a baby.....ask any physician, biologist or parent.
  5. This recently happened in Florida, a disgruntled ex-boyfriend slipped an abortion pill into his ex-girlfriends drink.....she lost the child and he was charged with murder. It's this simple, if the mom doesn't want the child...you can kill it....if she does want it and someone else kills it, it's murder.....perfect sense! https://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/man-charged-tricking-girlfriend-abortion-pill-article-1.1346447
  6. fetus noun fe·tus | \ ˈfē-təs \ Definition of fetus : an unborn or unhatched vertebrate especially after attaining the basic structural plan of its kindspecifically : a developing human from usually two months after conception to birth fetus [fe´tus] (L.) the developing young in the uterus, specifically the unborn offspring in the postembryonic period, which in humans is from thethird month after fertilization until birth.
  7. In most states when a pregnant woman is killed, the perp is charged with a double murder....Science tells us as well... that it is a tiny human.
  8. Please clarify what is growing in the female uterus before "first breath"? Using word games to justify the killing of innocent life is just science denial.
  9. Really?!? Jerermiah 1: [5] Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee.
  10. Some people find the killing of innocent babies unethical......i know it's hard for some to understand this.
  11. There are literally tens of thousands of Biblical manuscripts that support the biblical narrative and story. In both the Old and New Testaments, the biblical record tells of “scribes” whose job was to accurately reproduce the text of scripture. In searching the BOM the term “scribe” does not appear. Were the BOM prophets the only ones to record the BOM narrative, or were there scribes who made multiple copies of the record similar to the biblical scribes? If there was only a single copy of the BOM narrative (gold plates), how would the Lamanites and Nephites read, study or comprehend their history and their history with God?

    No record of "scribes" in the Book of Mormon.

    Yes, although I thought that was implied since I mentioned writings not destroyed. <grin> So far as I know no paper writings were found in the recent buildings that have been found. Although I do believe there are writings on the walls. It'd be wonderful if we found some writings since our knowledge of Mayan is so limited due to the lack of records. We have some of course but not many. There's no surviving Nephite ones. There are surviving Maya codices though. The Dresden Codex is the most famous example. It's possible that there still are writings that will be found one day. We don't know. It's also possible that all but the gold plates were destroyed when the Nephites were destroyed as an independent polity. Do you find it odd/troubling that there are tens of thousands of OT and NT manuscripts that have been found all over the old world and none for the BOM? It seems to me that something would have survided.

    Do any of these relics refer to the BOM narrative?

    Diego de Landa didn't come along until over a thousand years later.....do you think he was able to collect all the BOM writings and destroy them?

    Is there any surviving scrolls, plates, or manuscripts today or have they all been lost?

    "the plates weren't big enough and we changed the Hebrew...that's why the record we made isn't perfect"......sounds good enough for me! I'm glad the Hebrew scribes in the Old World had a little higher standard!

    Are the Mayans the Nephites or Lamanites? I thought that was a different culture and time period all together?

    Do you think there was a scribal class creating the many different records or was it mainly the prophets? The records that existed the Old World were typically papyri or animal skins...referred to as scrolls....why switch to the gold plates?

    This has to be one of the most bizaare verses in the BOM!! This makes no sense whatsoever!

    Thank you for your answer...I definitely think you are on the right track that there must have been some kind of scribal class as in the biblical narrative. Having come from the old world, any idea why these scribes started recording on plates as opposed to the tradition animal skin or papyri? Possibly a newer technology?

    Thanks Robert!

    Dr. Peterson and Biblical Archetypes

    I have not heard his Bible lectures but many of his debates and commentaries are on youtube. He interviews with Joe Rogan quite frequently and has discussed some of his views on the "person of Christ"....and I agree that his take is fascinating!

    JS Translation

    There is zero textual evidence that support the JST.

    Evolution

    Where am I wrong? Or where is Dr.Meyer wrong?
  25. snowflake

    Evolution

    If you want to build a new form of life (a new animal), the evolutionary process would need to produce new genetic information (new code). How does it do that? How could it do that? Random mutation cannot create new code! Natural selection cannot create new code! You need new information. We know from experience (in computer code) that if you start randomly changing code in information systems like DNA and computer code you are going to fundamentally degrade that code before you get anything that is new and useful. If you are a computer programmer and randomly start changing 0's and 1's, are you going to create a new program or operating system?, or are you going to introduce glitches and bugs into the program you already have? (credit do Dr. Stephen Meyer). Information sciences have shown that these typse of random mutations are incapable of generating something fundamentally new.
